A Review of the Estimates of the Sawtimber Stand in the United States, 1880-1946
Attempts to determine trends in timber depletion by quoting past estimates of standing timber have frequently been unsatisfactory. This has been due to changes in standards of merchantability, of accessibility, and of accuracies of the estimates themselves. The writer reviews the several estimates, outlines the standards used, and discusses their relative reliability. The estimates of 1945 for certain regions for which comparable earlier figures are available show a 14 percent decline in standing sawtimber during a period of about eleven years on the average.
